A new £2 million unit for stroke patients in South Yorkshire is set to be officially opened next week.

The ward, at Kendray Hospital, Barnsley, will offer rehabilitation for people recovering from strokes.

A dedicated team will be on hand to help patients, and each of the unit’s 16 bedrooms are fitted with overhead hoists and en-suite bathrooms.

The unveiling will be carried out by the Mayor of Barnsley, Coun Ken Richardson, accompanied by his wife, Nadia.

The stroke unit recently relocated from Mount Vernon Hospital.
